How does LinQ work?

Pattern 2 (Navigation Windows Lauches)

  • Step A (Search for printed journals)
    • LinQ automatically search on "Collections" whether Kyushu University posesses printed journals.
    • If we have them, you can read articles by visiting the libraries.
  • Step B (Request to other libraries)
    • Printed material can be ordered to other libraries.
    • Basically, it is a fee-based service, but we provide a subsidy under some conditions. See here for details.
